Syntax and Usage

See FIXME for demo. Use images as normal, this replaces them with lightbox type images. If size is not specified default image size is 150×150. You can change this in syntax.php if need.

Replaces png, gif, jpg (case sensitive maybe) images using these formats with lightbox type links
